The photographs included here are largely unmanipulated, reflecting what was there at a moment in time. Yet, they are also intended to speak to universals and to the connection between human intellect, feeling and artistic sensibility. If others find meaning in them, then they will have made a difference, while demonstrating the capacity of photography to engage in social discourse at many levels. Narrowly defined for generations, social discourse in photography can venture beyond realism and topical subject matter to take on meditations on life, existence, purpose and seeing itself. There are no limits on the nature of photography nor on the content or character of social discourse, as these photographs are intended to show.
